Bad Astronomy reviews this film in light of scientific fact:
"The Core" is not a bad movie; in fact, a lot of it was really fun. The science was not great, though some of it was pretty good. Too bad they blew it totally with the core stopping nonsense.
The New York Times review has only one positive comment:
'The Core'' falls soundly in the tradition of glamorous inconsistency that made 70's disaster pictures so much fun.
Roger Ebert's review closes with this:
It has energy and daring and isn't afraid to make fun of itself, and it thinks big, as when the Golden Gate Bridge collapses and a scientist tersely reports, "The West Coast is out." If you are at the video store late on Saturday night and they don't have "Anaconda," this will do.
Rolling Stone concludes:
The Core -- with its by-the-numbers plot and performances -- isn't offensive, just unblushingly tacky and derivative.
